    I'm not trying to be a dick, fr00t! My point is "what is the difference?".

    A good platter from a good forging company could be machined out of spec. So would that tell you to avoid uppers with that marking on them? No.

    Well. does the keyhole with three dots represent Cerro or no? In going through my currently from Clyde $1300 6920 while cleaning and inspecting and sitting here at the computer reading all I could about it on this fine forum..and Arfcom too..I now have a good idea what is in there for the good money I paid. I learned that Clyde and my local gunshop didn't take any liberties of the sort detailed in other posts. Maybe I can pass on what I have learned to other interested parties. Just sayin'...and who is frOOt?

    Fr00t is just a way of calling someone a harmless name when they misundertstood me. It's an old habit from TOS where there was a non stop stream of window licking, booger eaters.

    it would be nice to have photographs of some of these forge marks to go with their description.

    Yeah, it would. It would probably be the only such compendium on the intertubes and, as such, would be very useful. And what do the three dots inside the Ferro keyhole mean, anyway?

    so, I see "keyhole" in the list above, but is a keyhole with 3 dots inside it the same?
    Yeah, is it?

    It's not a bell it's a keyhole for a skeleton key and is the mark for Cerro forging.

    No, it is a bell. I looked again this morning. I thought it was on the upper receiver but, it is not. It is on the front sight post. So I will leave it for a different thread.
